A2: Buju Banton

PrideSource.com publishes a Between the Lines article about Buju Banton’s scheduled performance at the Blind Pig on Sept. 30. The Jamaican reggae artist’s show is being protested by LGBT community for his song “Boom Bye Bye,” which advocates the killing of gays and lesbians. The article quotes Jason Berry, booking agent for the Blind Pig: “For us, it’s about the fact that (the Caribbean) community never gets to see who they want to see. (Reggae dancehall) shows – there’s never any of that kind of (anti-gay) music and the crowd isn’t sitting there being whipped into an anti-gay frenzy by the people on stage. It’s nothing like that.” [Source]
